Things start to pick up at Eyes, Eleven, etc.
Once Cryptical gets going, the show really comes into its own, and despite some vocal problems early on the ladies dial in Morning Dew with the exact soulfulness you'd hope for, and, yes, it's a beauty (when was the last time you heard this tune jammed out?)
The Other One is absolute dynamite; in terms of playing shops that Quadlibet section is the main dish. Pretty far-out!
The rest of the set plays out in the competent way we're more familiar with when it comes to a Phil show. Enjoy the last 1/2 to 2/3rds, more or less.
Subject: bash and crash
They bash what they can't do, or they become the police...they both suck...
Subject: top 5 all time performance from phil and friends
Subject: Don't be mad...
I remember the dead shows I was at, we would beg phil to sing his songs.... and go crazy when he did. Now I'm in heaven, I don't care if his voice doesn't satisfy hypercritical self loathing hippies that couldn't hold phils wrist band, I frickin love it and can't wait to go to the Nokia Center this weekend.
Please keep it up.
Long live Phil.
Subject: Bad vocals?
Phil is incredible on Across the Universe > Eyes. Go smoke what little intelligence you have left away. Thanks.
Subject: Fine Fine show
Anyway, the playing is very nice and the 30 year old tunes have a bit of new life in these interpretations. I reccomend it and I have been to and seen the real deal more times than perhaps I should have. Nothing wrong with this show.
Subject: Jerry is dead... The Dead are not.
It was always about the music, and to take the focus off of that and denounce any music played from the Dead just because it doesn't have Jerry is complete lunacy, and anyone who does so isn't a music fan; they're a member of the Garcia cult. And the comment about not playing the Dead's music after thirty years is insane. Music doesn't "expire", and I can't believe a real Dead fan, who is most likely aging themselves, would support this view held mostly by young kids that refuse to listen to old music just because it isn't cool anymore. I'm a young guy myself. Should I not be allowed to see this music live, just because one of the members has passed on, eventhough the rest of the members are still accomplished musicians? And as for the audience, I could care less. I'm in it for the music, not some kind of social game. In that case, I think I understand the message of the band better than many of the so-called Deadheads.
Jerry pretty much killed himself. He didn't take the music with him. I think he would agree, and is cheerful that people still listen to the music, and still go to the concerts... that the flame lives on.
After having said that, this show is great. Phil was a major contributor to the Dead's sound, and one of Jerry's closest friends. Anyone who disagrees merely on the grounds of the rest of the Dead's absence completely misunderstands the spirit of the music that Jerry Garcia stood for.
However, as this is a downloaded music, I have to review this as such.
First, this contains some of the worst singing I have ever heard (I hope that's not Phil !).
Second, the attempts to do GD songs 30+ years later are, frankly lame. I don't want to antagonize anyone, but I only got the moxie up to write this from reading one other review that stated exactly what I was hearing - he said:
The guitarist "... sounds too much like Jerry when he plays lead." The exact copying of every tiny aspect of Jerry's licks made me ill, frankly. The other reviewer goes on to say "... Segal's keys are really cheesy sounding and lame, a lot like vinnie with his use of MIDI and vegas lounge act tone." Some of the songs come across as Muzak-elevator-easy listening versions of Dead songs.
It is possible to do one's old classics in a new way, with vigor and class - just listen to Jeff Beck's recent shows for any example. However, it is admittedly rare in a year when even "Styx" went on a reunion tour (gag).
I can fully understand the appeal of attending one of these shows But if you are downloading a show, I can't understand why anyone would not rather just download a real 1968 show that they had not heard yet, given that we can do so on this same site.
Subject: excellent performance, excellent crispy sound
i'd love to see this lineup play the northeast
Subject: absolutely beautiful!
Subject: st stephen
Subject: thank you
his music and playing has encouraged me to investigate what is truly righteous and whole in this world and it turns out that all it is is being in full acceptance of the present moment wholly, accepting and surrendering to the "now" fully and without withdrawal. accessing the unmanifested realm deep within.
not really a pertinent comment towards the show, however there is a connection here somewhere i'm sure.
i love The Eleven.
here's to the "Power of Now"
Subject: WOWZER - SOUND QUALITY+++
Subject: Phil is great
Subject: AMAZING SOUND!
About the show: the musicianship and band interaction is amazing. Aside from the sluggish tempo of Here Comes Sunshine (I prefer a great 1973 version from the boys), this show is off the charts. The science is heavy here...some very inspiring jams here. I LOVE this show! And damn Barry Sless is so good!
Subject: what up phil
I really thought most of the continuations between songs were amazing such as Across the Universe > Eyes of the World (Face melting) Stagger Lee > Friend of the Devil (flawless). The only real draw back was the JGB girls and their lack of knowledge when it comes to most of the lyrics, other then the songs they rehearse.
Cant wait for the Colorado shows one of the big highlight is going to be having Barraco back on keys and IÃÂm going to be interested to see how Jeff Sipe does with the band. See all you guys at the Fillmore and Red Rocks. THANKS PHIL, FOR A REAL GOOD TIME!
Subject: Thanks Phil
about the *quality* and concentrate on the groove and such. No show is ever perfect just be thankful for what you get... there's a novel idea. So in the
spirit of gratefulness and the residual hippy in all of us.
Thank You Very Much Phil
Subject: bluesy jazzy
Thanks to the band for the gift!
Subject: Thanks Phil
Subject: Mookie Siegel is THE HIGHLIGHT!
Mookie was the highlight for me.
Mookie Siegel is probably the most talented keyboard player around today. Anything with he and Sless together is bound to magical.
I love this show, but as far as disadvantages I agree with the previous reviewer in that the JGB girls subtract from the performance. Also, Al's vocals were weak. Phil should have let the Mook sing! He's got an incredible voice.
Subject: Thanks for your generosity!!
Subject: Phil, You da man!
Subject: thank you phil
Subject: A lot of fun
In terms of actual musicianship, not the greatest assembly...the band was not quite as tight as I had expected, and transitions between songs often seemed sloppy and unenthusiastic. A few highlights- Dancin, Eyes, Dew>Other One, St. Stephen...
Personal Highlight, A smiling Phil. Overall a solid 4 star show.
